Christmas should be as fashionable as it is fun. For some awesome inspiration, check out these Christmas outfit ideas!
Starbucks has released its token holiday cups which means Christmas season is in full swing. Soon you’ll get invites to tons of holiday parties that you’ll need Christmas outfit ideas for.
Every Christmas party is different. Some are explicitly Christmas sweater parties while others necessitate fancy dress.
Some women worry about having a new outfit for each party, especially if they’re all in the same “dress code” range. Really, if you have a few unique pieces, you’ll be able to mix and match with many pieces already in your closet for several holiday outfits.
Below we’ve listed 5 pieces you need for your holiday outfit closet this year.
Green Velvet Shirt or Dress
Velvet is something we only think to wear in the winter because it’s snuggly and warm. But dark green velvet makes us think of Christmas by a roaring fire in a wood-paneled library decked out for the holidays. In short, a velvet piece is a staple for your holiday closet.
A green velvet shirt is perfectly paired with black skinny jeans and a pair of heels. You can even latch onto the latest trend of having a velvet chocker built into the dress.
A green velvet dress will pair perfectly will some sparkly gold heels and a bright red lip.
A velvet piece for your closet will satisfy your Christmas party needs as well as your ASMR needs.
Bright Red Dress
A holiday red dress is quintessential for the Christmas season.
The good news about red holiday dresses is they come in so many cuts that fit your style and party dress code. Find a red sweater dress for more casual parties or a satin strapless dress for more formal affairs.
We particularly like long sleeve swing dresses. They can be paired with riding boots and tall socks for a casual look or black block heels for a dressier look.
Sequined or Metallic Skirt
Sequins scream holidays, no doubt about it. They’re also a super hot fashion trend for this year.
Having a sequin skirt in your closet will instantly upgrade your holiday party game. It’s one of those pieces that instantly adds texture and flair to an otherwise boring Christmas outfit.
These skirts come in a variety of colors, but we particularly like gold or silver. Those colors are easy to pair with many different tops and provide a bit more flexibility.
Plaid is another pattern that we associate with fall and the holidays. It’s warm, welcoming, and perfect for a Christmas party outfit.
We think of plaid as only being paired with jeans but you can do so much more with it.
Yes, you can pair a plaid shirt with boots and jeans or leggings for a casual look. But you can also dress it up with a tea-length skirt that has an airy texture to it like tulle or two layers for a more playful look.
Classic Christmas Sweater
Christmas sweaters, especially those of the ugly variety, have made a huge comeback over the last few years. They’re the perfect staple for your holiday closet because they’re warm, colorful, and conversation starters.
Whether you opt for one that makes it look like you’re heading to the Alps for a ski vacation or a goofy one, there’s plenty you can do with a Christmas sweater.
Pair your Christmas sweater with jeans or leggings for a more casual party. You can also pair one with a skirt and tights for a dressier look.
